Four women gather to celebrate their friendship. A quarter-century of intimacies shared, betrayals survived, differences reconciled.

There is Claire, with her unsuitable men; Nora, the perfect housewife; Maggie, who has been unhappily married to Ray for longer than she cares to remember. And then there is Georgie, feisty and opinionated, who has had her own way more than is good for her. But tonight, the complex web of spouses, lovers and secrets that has bound them all together is about to unravel. And one of the four women plans not to be there.
